In Communist Mutants from Space, the player controls a laser cannon at the bottom of the screen, defending Earth from waves of invading communist mutants. The mutants appear in formations at the top of the screen and descend towards the player's cannon, firing projectiles and attempting to destroy it.
The objective of the game is to shoot down the mutants and prevent them from reaching the bottom of the screen. The mutants move in patterns and become progressively faster and more challenging as the game progresses. The player must aim carefully and time their shots to destroy the mutants while avoiding their projectiles.
The game features multiple levels, with each level increasing in difficulty and introducing new types of mutants. Additionally, there are power-ups that can be collected to enhance the player's firepower and defensive capabilities.
